Critics Consensus

Though not quite as comical, Girl Meets World sweetly shares the nostalgia of its predecessor, Boy meets World, with its young audience while providing positive moral values for today's youth.

Critic Reviews for Girl Meets World Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

The characters could keep young folks happy for a while, but it would be nice if the girl could meet some jokes.

Top Critic

The nostalgia angle doesn't hold up real well.

Jun 26, 2014 | Full Review…

[It] does its job of bringing tween-based family viewing into the 2010s.

Top Critic

GMW does improve significantly after the pilot, but it has yet to recapture the warm spirit that made BMW shine.

Jun 27, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The two lead girls in this are awesome...Whoever did the casting for those two? Very good job.

Mar 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Spin-off series has multi-generational appeal, OK lessons.

Jul 2, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I think it's a cute show that has potential and the nostalgia factor on its side, even if the Disney Channel cheese is a little hard to look past sometimes.

Jun 30, 2014 | Full Review…

GMW is a show for today's generation, and maybe it's time to fall in love with the Matthews all over again.

Jun 30, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With the weight of one World on its back, Girl Meets World comes out strong, finding its own way, rather than just walking in the footsteps of that which came before it.

Jun 30, 2014 | Rating: 7.9/10 | Full Review…

A fun and energetic continuation of the series...

Jun 28, 2014 | Full Review…

It's a surprisingly terrific [children's show] which not only manages to capture the essence of the much-loved Boy Meets World, but it also begins an exciting new chapter for the Matthews family - one that's worth keeping an eye on, regardless of age.

Jun 27, 2014 | Full Review…

The central figures of yet another generic teen sitcom [are] all but choked by unconvincing canned laughs to the lamest of lines, some of which couldn't possibly be considered punchlines.

Audience Reviews for Girl Meets World: Season 1

  • Jan 20, 2020
    I loved the first season of this show. It was full of Disney Channel cheese, sure, but it kept my attention with some fun throwbacks to Boy Meets World. I also liked the performances of Mya and Farkle. The nostalgia is strong with this one and with me.
  • Oct 27, 2018
    I loved all the seasons all the episodes,
  • Oct 22, 2017
    This is my very favorite live-Action Disney Channel show that I have ever seen.

    For a whole new generation who wants to know more about the remarkable "Boy meets World", this is a joy to behold. With Girl meets World, Disney has made one of their finest TV Series ever. Even I, who don't like almost those teenage feelings on TV, have to say that this is such a perfect entertainment that you were looking for...

    A really sweet show. The humor is not as slapstick as the normal Disney fair- something I usually greet with distaste. The new Disney is far too trendy for me, trying to hard to be all style and no substance- except the style is pretty terrible too. While the style of this show has the new Disney stamp on it, what differs from it is that it does in fact have substance. Although occasionally shoe-horning in it's central message for each episode (take the pilot for example- if you were to create a drinking game just for how many times they drive home the word "world" you'd be plastered by the end of the half hour), the show doesn't fail in sharing truly good messages for young and old as well as giving you the warm fuzzies. The show tackles serious subject matter as well as sharing in a few giggles,(although subscribing to the usual bouts of in your face humor, it rarely comes off as obnoxious and doesn't overuse its laugh track, especially considering its filmed in front of a live studio audience, and the laughter and other reactions by the audience seem genuine). Although some might find the show a bit melodramatic and the humor a bit too silly, it is a good show not despite of this, but because of it. In an age where we expect our drama to be dark and gritty and our humor to be clever and punchy always, it is nice to see something that doesn't take itself too seriously, and can be appreciated for that. Fans like myself of the old Boy Meets World I expect will be pleasantly surprised by how faithfully it follows in it's predecessor's footsteps. However, this is for a new generation, and those who watch it should not be turned off of it by comparing it too quickly to long time favorites bathed in nostalgia (although nostalgia this show has, as it brings back old characters all the time in fun, surprising ways). Girl Meets World is meant for a young audience just as Boy Meets World was, similar in comparison to Full House and it's reboot. Critics of the new Fuller House complain about how silly it is in comparison to the old show, when critics back in the 80s/90s complained for the same exact reason, many also had the same complaints for Boy Meets World in the day. Old favorites such as Full House and Boy Meets World are exactly that, fun, silly past times we enjoyed when we didn't take our tv or ourselves quite as seriously. If you are looking for a good show for your kids to watch instead of the barrage of cookie-cutter sitcoms of loud mouthed, bratty teens, this is exactly the show. If you are an old fan of Boy Meets World looking for a boost of nostalgia or a similar fun, silly, sweet pastime, I'd say go ahead but take it with a grain of salt- it is meant for kids after all. We aren't supposed to compare Blues Clues with Breaking Bad. Overall I really like this show, and I love to watch it in my down time.

    While the show started off a little cheesy with all of the odes to BMW, the show has turned into such a great stand alone show. Season One focuses on meeting and getting to know the characters. You come to really love all of the characters!!!
  • Sep 05, 2015
    Great show to continue from Boy Meets World!
  • Jul 01, 2015
    This is one of the sweetest, funniest, most nostalgic and refreshing Disney series I've seen in a while. Good job, Disney!
  • May 13, 2015
    I love this show. Growing up with Boy Meets World, I love the fact that Girl Meets World has an awesome cast just as Boy Meets World did. Don't change a thing :0)
